Opponent Watch 2019: Texas A&M

(Patrick) #1

Could be a good thing that we get them on Sunday at the Minute Maid Classic and possible avoid their top 2 starters. Also get them in the midweek game later in the year.

While the Aggies have one spot to fill in the weekend rotation, they feel great, and rightfully so, about lefthanded pitchers John Doxakis and Asa Lacy. Doxakis is one of the premier lefties in the junior class, while Lacy has some serious buzz after a strong summer at the Alaska League.

A&M also welcomes back plenty of key cogs from an offensive standpoint, including standout shortstop Braden Shewmake, while several newcomer shave made strong impressions this fall.

“I feel like we’re older again offensively,” Texas A&M coach Rob Childress said. “We’ve got a lot of experience back from an offensive standpoint. I feel like we’re really talented from an offensive standpoint with a lefthanded heavy lineup.
